Yes, AFAICS. The custom xml handling basically transforms a bean 
definition. And the property place holder will act on the resulting bean 
definition. So as long as the resulting bean definition contain 
reasonable properties, it should work. We need to think about it during 
the design of the formats so that the property path corresponds to the 
XML format in some way that seem natural for the user.
